By Jerry Akornor 

Senior Community Health Nurse at Ketu South Central Aflao Hospital Gloria Afi Donkor has revealed that the misconception and untruths being peddled about Covid-19 vaccines in the country is driving away many clients from participating in malaria vaccination in the area. 



Malaria is caused by Plasmodium parasite also known as female anopheles mosquito.  Many including preachers have alleged that the Covid-19 has serious health implications intended by the manufacturers to ward off African species. According to Senior Community Health Nurse at Ketu South Central Aflao Hospital Gloria Afi Donkor, this falsehood being thrown into the public domain is driving away clients hitherto were effectively patronising malaria vaccination programmes. 



Speaking to Ghana News Desk's Jerry Akornor, Senior Community Health Nurse at Ketu South Central Aflao Hospital Gloria Afi Donkor, said "In the past, it was very easy when we started malaria vaccination. But,  when the Covid-19 vaccines arrived in Ghana, most of the parents think it is the Covid-19 vaccines we are giving to them. We had to intensify education to clear the doubts"



He told Ghana News Desk's Jerry Akornor that " some fathers are not allowing mothers to come for the malaria vaccines because they don't know whether they are actually malaria vaccines".


But, Senior Community Health Nurse at Ketu South Central Aflao Hospital Gloria Afi Donkor has revealed the malaria vaccination programme has reduced malaria deaths fatalities in the area. 


" Malaria deaths fatalities have reduced because when it came initially, majority of them took it. But, many parents have stopped coming for the malaria vaccines, it is just because of the myths surrounding the Covid-19 vaccines, that's why many are no more coming". 



"I want to entreat the mothers and the whole public, every parent particularly the fathers should allow mothers to bring their children for vaccination so we safe life and money".
